28 Days of Dilla #7: Happy Birthday, Jay Dee!


We’re wishing James Yancey a happy birthday on Day 7 of 28 Days of Dilla.

¡Feliz cumpleaños!, bonne anniversaire, happy birthday. Whatever language you say it in, it means the same thing; it’s a celebration of someone’s life on the day it came into the world. Alas, Mr Yancey’s is no longer with us to enjoy the occasion but that doesn’t mean we can’t still celebrate his work – and that’s what we’ll do. Below you’ll find some of our favourite videos, tracks and articles about the great man. Whether you’re not that familiar with his or you want to appreciate his work all over again, enjoy!
